The following obituary was composed by me and appeared in the Durham (NC) Herald-Sun on August 14, 2008:
Julianne Regina Clark Stephens
On August 13, 2008, Julianne Clark Stephens, 65, of Durham, passed away at the Hospice at the Meadowlands in Hillsborough after a battle with metastasized breast cancer. She was born in Oklahoma City on July 31, 1943, the eldest child of Louis Watts Clark and Lillian Marguerite (King) Clark. Julie graduated from high school in Cullowhee, NC, and attended St. Bonaventure University near Olean, NY, for a short time before her marriage in December 1961. She later enrolled at the University of North Carolina where she received a Bachelor with Honors in Psychology, minor in Philosophy in 1971. Continuing her education at Duke University, she received a Master in Psychology, minor in Education, in 1975. She was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
During her career, she worked for many years in the field of clinical psychology. Later she ran her own computer database company called Accuserve. Until her most recent hospitalization, she was also an adjunct instructor at Durham Technical Community College. She was an avid swimmer and enjoyed eating out with her friends in the Dine-Out Club.
Julie is survived by her daughter, Donna Manley, and by her mother, Lillian Clark. Her father, Louis Watts Clark, died in Tela, Honduras in October, 2006. She is also survived by her 10 siblings: Ramona Hanrahan, Rosaleen Salvo, Philip Clark, Teresa Dutton, Vincent Clark, Mary Giles, Victor Clark, John Clark, Patrick Clark, and Jenny Brack. Julie will be greatly missed by her long-time friend, Mort Zwick, and by her beloved cat, Joshua.
Julie's wishes were to be cremated. Funeral arrangements are pending.
A shorter, more basic obit also appeared in the Herald-Sun on August 20, 2008, which contained information about her scheduled memorial service.
